Review Wrap Up: The Long Way by Aaron Redfern

Young Adult
Published by BookRix: 5/19/2012

In a move that defies all logic and likelihood, a young boy named Spiff is called upon to carry out the most important quest that has ever been undertaken. His mission drags him headlong across the face of the world, through a veritable pantheon of hardships and threats that are at once chilling and baffling. Along the way he meets dragons and madmen, and learns that the lovable and the monstrous are two sides of the same coin.

Conceived as a darkly whimsical loose retelling of the Tolkien saga, The Long Way poses the 
question that high fantasy rarely cares to ask: Why?

From Texas Book Nook:
Fantastical. For fans of Harry Potter/Lord of the Rings/etc. This is an outright Fantasy Adventure. I think even though it is a YA novel it can be enjoyed by anyone who likes those types of books.

The descriptions were enough to draw me into the world without the novel feeling like it was bogged down and dragged on.

I think Euclid really enhanced the experience and was a great asset to the characters in the novel. All of the characters were very well developed.

The plot flowed smoothly and definitely kept me flipping pages until the very end. Great novel from Aaron Redfern

Aaron Redfern has been reading and writing fantasy since a time when he could count his age on his fingers. He went to Williams College and studied English, a language in which he was already proficient, and although he learned almost nothing from the English professors, dead poets and novelists taught him a great deal. While at college, he fell thoroughly in love with New England. He has decided never to leave and currently resides near Northampton, Massachusetts.

Aaron has written three novels, including The Long Way and its sequel, The Forgotten Way. His short-fiction titles include Stories About the Rain and Crawl.
